Dresses, invitations, flowers, food, venue, honeymoon. Yikes.
When I got engaged, I didn't have the slightest idea about the world I would suddenly be thrown into. And I love it.
I'm not afraid to say it. I love it! The inspiration boards, color pallets, dress shopping. I love it!
But wait, this isn't how we live. We are compost-loving, veggie-growing, non-profit-working farmers. We live in a house truck. We wear jandals more often than shoes. Let's face it, we are dirt-lovin' tree-huggers. We know more about PV (photo-voltaic) than STD's (Save-the-dates)...
But those inspiration boards are just so pretty. I can't get enough.
Mr. Veggie Farmer is a bit ambivalent about the whole wedding thing. Excited to be a husband? Yes. Excited to have me as his wife? Yes. Not so excited about the planning of an event. Less excited every minute that he sees me spend drooling over pictures found on wedding sites of people's beautiful weddings. There has been many an eyes rolled at my excitement over invitation suites and hair accessories.
His main concern is that we would cast aside our values to put on a celebration, just on the day when we should be vowing to help each other work to uphold our values. His other concern is financial. We are starting up a non-profit, and we just are the kind of people who enjoy simple things. No need to spend tons of money when what we really love are our family, friends, good food, and fun times. He has a point. Well, he has two points.
But I'm convinced that we can have pretty and simple. Relaxed and amazing. Eco and affordable.
Is it possible? Absolutely. We invite you to join us as we enter the treacherous world of wedding planning.
